Scott withdraws from Dunhill Championship

Australian Adam Scott has withdrawn from Alfred Dunhill Championship in Johannesburg this week after his father was involved in a boating accident.

The 21-year-old, whose only European Tour success to date was the event 12 months ago at the Houghton Club, withdrew on Monday night.

''Adam pulled out because his father was involved in a boating accident,'' said Lali Stander, press officer of the Southern Africa Tour.

''We don't know at this stage how serious the accident was,'' he added.

Scott, who turned professional in June 2000, was victorious at the event last year when pipping England's Justin Rose to the title.

The Dunhill Championship, which is co-sanctioned by the South African and European Tours, boasts an impressive line-up including US Open champion Retief Goosen and Ernie Els.
